For some reason, I’ve been bypassing the creamy, protein-packed lil’ cups every day for the past week or so.
It was high time to change that!
I made myself a bowl of yogurt mousse, using a cup of plain Greek yogurt and a big spoonful of instant chocolate pudding mix.
I then topped the chocolate-flavored yogurt with a sliced frozen banana.
Neglected, no more! 😀
Today’s workout had me sweatin’!
I took a BodyPump class, followed by 10 minutes of cardio split between the stair master and the elliptical.
The teacher at my gym this morning annoyed me a little because she was pretty negative and was a stickler for form. I totally understand the importance of proper form, but I could tell her intense focus on the improper form of certain class participants made some people uncomfortable.
It’s all about the delivery!
Had she harped on the proper way to do certain exercises with a positive tone, it would’ve made all the difference. I don’t think most group exercisers want to feel like they’re back in school and getting reprimanded. A polite correction is appreciated, but a condescending one is not. I even saw three people leave before the third track was over.
Question of the Morning
Have you ever had a bad experience with a group exercise instructor?
I think my worst experience was during a spinning class several months ago.
The instructor was a big, beefy guy who never got on the bike, played screaming heavy metal music and danced like he was in a club the whole time (as in he never moved his feet, but grooved in one spot like a mega-tool). You could tell he thought he was a hottie tottie. Not my cuppa tea!
